Sahara Lounge lands a spot on Culture Map Austin


Thank you to Brandon Watson and Culture Map for naming the Sahara Lounge as one seven magical spots to grab a drink in Austin. Come in anytime for a Sahara Slant and some soulful grooves.

Although we have never peeked at their records, we suspect that the mother and son who run this east side hot spot both have very diverse collections. After all, the acts they bring to the stage certainly reflect a wide variety of tastes. From folk and funk to reggae and rock, everything is welcome at Sahara Lounge, and everyone is welcome to groove along with it. Before doing so, one should definitely order the Sahara Slant, an instant party starter with Maine Root ginger brew, spice rum, lime juice, and a splash of potent Ghanaian spirit akpeteshie.
